It must be the same people who programmed the University of Waterloo online systems.. :D I remember the day that the web-based ACCESS was launched, it crashed within hours of the first posting of co-op jobs. Also, the day when the rankings came out.. ACCESS crashed also. Oh and who can forget QUEST, the online student information system that allows us to view our marks and register for courses? QUEST goes down more often than .. .
